Temple of Lore by saltytowel Temple of Lore by saltytowel
A quick warm up before the real work- doing some backgrounds for a cool animation, a first big project for me. Plus, it's a completely different style from what I usually produce.

Hi, you wanna me to critics some of your work, as promise, here is one ^^
First i'll start tell you that i didn't judge as bad work or good work, all works make us progress so of course it's a good picture and quit well done in all case comparing to a lot of other deviants you're already in the good section ^^
My critics could be feel hard but as always it's only to help and no to destroy people, juste help them to progress and make better each time.
I didn't used to write a lot of critics but try to be the most precise as possible.
You got a nice color choice here in my opinion it's ok but for the composition...maybe you should think about the "third rules", the main focus in my opinion should be the temple and unfortunatly you pur it near the center of the picture from left to right and near from top to bottom in middle too.
Maybe you could enhanced your composition by put your building start from 1 third from the bot and put your too characters on both of focus point.
Use your trees for exemple to give more "distance" view, you can keep your main focus on the building but placing elements well will enhanced the composition.
The boat on each side of the picture make us feel about "opressing" but here is a temple, some nature, give us space to look at this peace, we're closed in the picture.
Maybe you think my critic is hard but as always it's only my opinion and it could change with other peoples.
If i had to redesign this scene i think i will put the temple on the first third from the left and use the 2 boats on 2 focus point of my "third rule" grid to create a comparaison bitween each other that will give the distance for the scene and a "tall" for the rest of the scene, imagine you divide the size of the boat by 2, the temple will look like bigger/taller. It's the main piece of your scene so he should pop out and make us a feeling of "waow ! what a temple". Hope you know what i mean.
For the blue at the background, it always work with green foreground.
Even if it's concept art you have to feel the story or what you wanna transmit to people who look at it.

Here i saw 2 boat 1 guy, 1 temple but how ? why ? what's the story about this place, there's one of course, the entire scene is quit "frozen" it feel static, nothing move ? no wind ? how the boat move without wind ? A lot of little elements wich could increase the entire picture.

For the trees at the foreground the bot receive orange/yellow light, the building too so maybe add some yellow value at the top of your tree to add the same light on your elements.

Once again, it's only my opinion and i tried to be constructive so hope it help ^^
In all case, good work to progress, just draw draw draw and maybe draw again and again, the best way to increase your skills ^^ (i have to increase my skills too, always wanna create better ^^)

Have a nice day and c u soon, feel free to ask if you need an other critic ^^

Hey, many thanks for the helpful crit. 
I agree, my composition skills need more working upon. I'll re-read this comment again, just to make sure I got everything.

Don't worry about your english, I understand what you're saying without any trouble.

Cheers!

We live and learn. What is the positive spin on your painting? :? 
Never say derogatory things about your paintings. They all are good. Find the good, and learn from your mistakes, but keep the glass at least half-full. Celebrate life and creativity! :clap::party::airborne:
You are most welcome! :D

I usually don't say derogatory things about my paintings, but sometimes I'm unable to achieve something and I need to work on this. But yeah, a positive attitude helps a lot :)
